Top Tips For Surviving Hen Weekends

Follow these simple steps and hopefully you’ll survive to tell the tale!

Prepare for anything

If the girls have kept every little detail a secret, then you might be feeling unsure what to pack and what to bring. To be on the safe side, without packing your entire wardrobe, take appropriate clothes for all situations including nights out, walking and cold weather.

Preparing for anything is also preparing for the inevitable, so make sure you pack the essentials when you are hit with the hangover from hell. Stock up on paracetamol, ibuprofen, berocca and whatever else you need to get you back on track.

Pace yourself

As the bride to be, all eyes will be on you and the drinks will be coming in thick and fast. But remember that you don’t have to accept every drink bought for you and sometimes it’s best to listen to your sensible side and slow it down on your alcohol intake.

Don’t forget that the whole point of hen weekends is to have fun, so don’t be too sensible!

Get plenty of sleep

Your hen party is going to be fun-filled with a busy itinerary, so it’s likely you won’t be getting much rest during the crucial time whenyou should be partying.

Make sure you take things easy during the days leading up to your hen do. Try to get plenty of rest to give yourself lots of energy to enjoy the top hen weekend activities your friends have arranged for you.

Remember to eat & drink

As well as drinking alcohol, remember to drink plenty of other liquids. Consuming lots of alcohol over the weekend will probably leave you feeling dehydrated, so it’s important to rehydrate and keep yourself feeling fresh.

It’s also a good idea to line your stomach with some good food before you set off for a night of drinking and debauchery. If you ask us, the following morning when you have a stinking hangover calls for a greasy fry-up!
